IAF finalising norms for 114 jet


The Indian Air Force (IAF) is close to finalising the technical parameters for the 114 fighter aircraft tender in process and the case is expected to be put before the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) in June.

“The Air Staff Quality Requirements (ASQR) are being finalised by the Air Force Headquarters. After that the file would be sent to the Integrated Defence Staff (IDS) within two months for formulating within the Service Capital Acquisition Plans,” a defence official said.

However, the next meeting of the DAC is scheduled only in June after the elections, the official said and added, “We will put it up before the DAC then for getting the Acceptance of Necessity (AoN).”

After the AoN is granted, the IAF will issue the detailed Request For Proposal (RFP) to the vendors based on the ASQRs. Read More
